Too good to be true: Wal-Mart cancels Brawl preorders

Wii Fanboy writes:


Just as we assumed, the epic Super Smash Bros. Brawl preorder deal we featured this morning was a total boner on Wal-Mart's part, as evidenced by the now-missing product page. But instead of honoring the $19.82 price for anyone who ordered the game before its listing was pulled -- like we all hoped the retail giant would do, despite our usual pessimism -- Wal-Mart has canceled the reservations, presumably refunding all charges."

I thought it was too good to be true. I got Guitar Hero III (with the guitar and everything) from for $50 and they honored that price (not sure if it was a mistake or not but it's long gone now). I really think if it's their mistake, they should pay for it.

Another reason not to shop at Wal-Mart.

Get over it. I've ordered price mistakes 100 times before, and only actually gotten them twice: Once at Best Buy when I did an in-store pickup minutes before they realized the error and canceled orders; and once when they realized they realized the mistake when only a few dozen items had been sold, so it didn't cost them much.

There were undoubtedly thousands (if not tens of thousands) orders placed for this game. Are you telling me if you ran a business you would take the $100,000+ hit just because an employee typed the wrong number into a computer?

I knew it. Wal-mart screwed the consumers, yet again. "Low prices, Always!" My ass.
